I have been saving some photos for you of my trip to Version Scrap in Paris…and of course on my desk are the few goodies I managed to buy.
So few you might wonder….and of course there is a tale to tell…..
Hubby had a migraine on the morning my SIL and I were due to go so he stayed in the hotel while we walked with BIL to where Version Scrap was being held. As we were on the way hubby phoned to say he was feeling better, so BIL and he arranged to met at the Natural History Museum - about half a mile away from VS.
By the time we had gone through security and then to the ticket Desk to pick up our tickets,(kindly left by Sally from Paper Artsy as I had applied to PA for tickets) it was getting on and the place was PACKED!!!!
Not wanting to rush into spending our money we ambled(and fought our way through crowds!)around the area, SIL bought some distress inks and we went to join the hot dog queue. It was hot and both my cardi and coat were draped over my bag while we ate. As we were near to the loos decided to 'go'! Just as we were sorting out bags BIL appeared - asking why we weren't answering our phones…it seems that he had been trying for an hour….hubby had passed out in a lift at the museum!!!
Now…if I had answered the call I probably would have suggested that hubby sleep it off…he was in a darkened medical room at the museum…but as BIL had rushed over, fought his way in(tight security regs and no ticket!!) felt the best thing to do was to leave…except that I hadn't bought anything and there was no pass out system available(or maybe there was - I just asked the wrong people)!
I knew that if I went back to hubby and and hadn't bought anything he would yell at me(sort of..he doesn't yell!!)so I gave myself 20 minutes to zoom to two stands - probably would have got more but the queues to pay were quite long so just grabbed at stuff…as you see here!
We hot footed over to the museum to find hubby….first words…"What are you doing here?"…….
Good news is - he felt better and we set off and found somewhere for the menfolk to eat while we enjoyed a cup of coffee!
Now for those photos..
I hope I haven't rambled too much and that you enjoy these photos!
Thanks for looking, Chris
